  • Summary: Side-scrolling beat-'em-ups are a dime a dozen. In every arcade corner and on every console, you'll see hundreds of variations on the genre from River City Ransom to The Simpsons , right down to the pixelated prowess of the Scott Pilgrim game. With every title, the developers try to bring something new to the genre, while also keeping the gameplay familiar and fun for those who love this style of game.

  • Conclusion: Concept: Make a brawler spin-off to a fighting game that hasn’t made it to North America yet Graphics: The cartoony pixel characters will immediately appeal to fans of the Scott Pilgrim game Sound: A catchy theme song and subtitled Japanese dialogue fit the mood well Playability: The in-game instructions could be a lot clearer, but the battle system is impressive once you get in the swing of things Entertainment: This is clearly for a very specific niche.

  • Excerpt: Despite being announced almost a year and a half ago and reviewed by multiple outlets, the Phantom Breaker 2D fighting game has yet to see release in the U.S. But that hasn’t stopped Japanese publisher 5pb from releasing this spinoff on XBLA. With its detailed and smoothly animated sprite visuals, incredibly catchy chiptune soundtrack, and side-scrolling brawler gameplay, Battle Grounds easily draws comparisons to the much-loved Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game .
  • Pros: + Well-drawn, nicely animated retro-style graphics and chiptune music., + Fun combat engine that evolves with player-guided level-ups.
  • Cons: ? So when does the original

  • Conclusion: If there had been more game modes, this game could easily have been one of the best beat em’ up games ever. For ten bucks (800 MSP) this on this one hits it out of the park despite its relatively low difficulty level and lackluster game mode variety, and really shouldn’t be overlooked.

  • Summary: Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds – это стильный, быстрый и затягивающий side scrolling beat-em-up, которому не хватает чуть более глубокой истории и отточенного сетевого кода. В остальном – это одна из лучших игр в своем жанре и определенно стоит своих 800 MS Points. Автор: XTR , редактирование: OPEX, ACE. Пройдено на Xbox 360.
